Since the fall of 1992 i have been here in the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) laboring towards a Master of Fine Arts degree. My focus has been almost entirely on computer graphics, with a side of programming.

Since the Masters i am pursuing is in Fine Art, my final thesis requirement was to put on a show at a gallery. The show was put on, but it was incomplete, and much of the stuff that did end up getting installed was late. I also tend to agree with my committee when they say that it was a sloppy installation. If only those aliens hadn't abducted me right in the middle of crunch time...

Anyway, my commitee has granted me a second chance, and i am currently working on the make-up project (and no, it has nothing to do with cosmetics). The linked documents below describe the disastrous gallery show and the work i am now in the process of churning out (no apologies for that dangling participle).


The Divine Concept

Last year i read an article, Exploring Chaos and Fractals, which discusses scientists' early experiments with iteration: "...their mathematics produced images which were ... at times, awesomely like nature." To me, it was as if these scientists had stumbled upon the equation that rules the universe; the process that "God" uses to create all things; the "Divine Algorithm." This project is about the set of laws, the equation that governs the creation, existence, and destruction of all things.

My Lovely and Talented MFA Committee

Thanks to these guys, who put up with a lot of aggravation from me in the last few months, and have helped me out anyway:
